Emmerdale fans divided by Meena verdict as killers fate revealed

Emmerdale fans have been left divided after the explosive trial of Meena Jutla came to an end.

Meena (played by Paige Sandhu) had been on trial for the murder of Ben Tucker, Andrea Tate and Leanna Cavanagh and while the village knew that she was the killer, Meena still denied all of the crimes she was accused of.

As a result, Leanna’s father, Dr Liam Cavanagh and Meena’s own sister, Dr Manpreet Sharma took to the stand in a bid to have the evil murderer convicted.

The twisted killer tried to pin each murder on witnesses giving statements, but the jury didn’t believe her lies and, in the end, found her guilty on all counts.

However, Emmerdale fans were slightly disappointed to hear the verdict, as it meant she would be put into prison for her crimes.

Many fans thought it was sad that Meena was leaving to be put in prison after being an “incredible” character leading many dramatic storylines in recent months.

"Unpopular opinion it seems but I f***ing love Meena and even though I no longer watch #Emmerdale, I’m actually gutted she’s leaving! Best character that’s been on the show for years and I wish she could continue her murdering spree tbh," one ITV viewer tweeted.

A second added: "She’s great! I’ll be sad to see her go!!," as a third shared: "Despite what everyone says, I have LOVED the Meena storyline! The performances from everyone involved over the last year and a half has been stellar. But what made this storyline was the performance of Paige Sandhu, give her all of the awards now.”

There were some people who were pleased that the storyline had finally come to an end though, ands delighted to see justice being served.

One penned: "Thank f*** that it’s all guilty, but she better not die, I want her to suffer prison for life! #Emmerdale."

"Oooo two counts of guilty and Meena is kicking off! Then a third count of guilty!!! #Emmerdale.” another wrote, as a third fan added: "OMG! She’s been found guilty!!! #Emmerdale.”

During the trial, Meena shared new lies, claiming she killed Ben in self-defence and pretending to have had an affair with Liam.

In a twisted statement, Meena said to Liam: "He let her down as a father, and he needed someone to blame. Liam's not who people think he is, he's cruel, controlling and I was so scared. I thought he was going to kill me.”

Meena also fabricated that she had become pregnant either from Liam or Billy, and claimed she had taken several pregnancy tests to verify this.

She stated: "I didn't have the chance to register the pregnancy, because after Christmas Day and the pub explosion, I lost my baby."
